Is Big E Langston Turning Into a ‘Brony’?
Big E Langston hit the WWE scene at last year’s TLC pay-per-view. Before that he was destroying jobbers on NXT and pinning them for five counts. The guy is a smashing machine in pretty much every sense of the word. Unless, of course, you hand him a child’s toy. Then, all bets are off.
This weekend, during WrestleMania 29’s Fan Axxess, a fan brought Big E his very own personalized My Little Pony. If you’re not familiar, My Little Pony are toys made generally for young girls, and come in a variety of colors. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “why would someone ever hand such a trinket to a guy who demolishes people for a living?” The answer? Because it’s absolutely hilarious.
I’m not sure which part I find more amusing– the fact that Big E Langston is so thrilled to be handed a My Little Pony, or how jealous A.J. Lee becomes when she doesn’t receive such a gift. Dolph Ziggler, YOUR new World Heavyweight Champion, couldn’t contain his own excitement, as he had to give the toy horse a round of applause, which also drew the ire of A.J.
How can anyone not enjoy the trio of Langston, Lee, and Ziggler? It just seems like they’re out there living their dream together, and they hardly have to try to pull of this “gimmick.” It’s a shame Ziggy and Biggy didn’t win the titles at WrestleMania 29, but the future holds big things for this threesome.
Unless of course they decide to make Big E the WWE’s first ‘Brony.’ Then things might get weird.
